earlier today we had a little rain from the warm front part of this storm. that got through here, the sun started to bust out, we warmed up pretty quickly speaking close to 70 degrees but quickly after that that cold front came through, the reason we did that in the northern half is because the northern part of the state never really got in the warm air, as we said, close to 70 in baltimore, now back to 58 degrees. still mild across the south but these temperatures also were in the mid-70s and in this area right in here never really got into that warmth. so as the line of thunderstorms came in it just fizzled out into a heavier rain with still some thunderstorms embedded in. wind-wise, start to go pick up a little bit out there as that cold front is making its way through. nothing extreme but the winds will be gusting close to 30 miles per hour as we head through the evening hours, snotting like last friday. so a little different there. here is a storm on the whole, it is a big one, here is the warm front part of it. here is the cold front part of it. even some snow on the northern side of this. so we had the warm front go
